Since Prague is one of the most popular European capitals and many people choose it to stay there all year round, the best choice to reach the center is undoubtedly to book a private taxi service from Prague Airport.
Capital of the Czech Republic since January 1st, 1993, the year of its birth, has a population of just over one million inhabitants and covers 500 square kilometers. Its geographical position in the center of Europe makes it an excellent starting point for visiting the surrounding Bohemian region, of which it is also the capital, and numerous other European cities such as Nuremberg, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest.
What to see in Prague
The Czech capital is an important tourist center, visited by about 6,000,000 people every year. Among the destinations not to be missed, we point out the following:
- The famous Charles Bridge: the symbolic monument of the city, which connects the Old Town to the Small District (in Czech Malà Strana). The bridge, transformed today into a pedestrian area, allowed the passage of four coaches side by side. Many of its statues are actually copies, in fact the originals are kept in the National Museum just to limit the damage to time.
- St. Nicholas Church: divides and dominates the two parts of the square of the Small District.
- The Prague Castle: founded in the ninth century, despite the fires and invasions, it has kept inside churches, chapels, halls and towers representative of all the historical periods crossed.
